And if those vehicles didn't leave brand purists apoplectic enough, Porsche has been adding diesel and hybrid power to its portfolio, thought to this point, neither alt-fuel motivator has made its way into the brand's sports car lineup.<br /><br />Today's <a /frankfurt-motor-show/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/frankfurt-motor-show/">Frankfurt Motor Show</a> effectively marks the second-generation of diesel power in the Panamera, and this updated 3.0-liter V6 features 300 horsepower (50 ponies more than last year) and a whopping 479 pound-feet of torque, available from 2,500 rpm. That power is achieved with a new higher-pressure, water-cooled turbo and redesigned engine internals that include a new crankshaft and pistons. The newfound increase is said to raise top speed to 161 miles per hour from 152, and drop the car's 0-62 mph time from 6.8 seconds down to 6.0. It also figures to be a better handler, with a new torque-vectoring rear differential borrowed from its gas-powered brethren and a reworked transmission for crisper shifts. The suspension has also been retuned, along with the updated 2014 visuals <a /2013/04/20/2014-porsche-panamera-s-e-hybrid-shanghai-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/04/20/2014-porsche-panamera-s-e-hybrid-shanghai-2013/">first revealed</a> at April's <a /shanghai-motor-show/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/shanghai-motor-show/">Shanghai Motor Show</a>.<br /><br />No word yet on the North American sales prospects of this diesel Panamera, but we imagine that depends in part on how well the Cayenne diesel is selling.<p><a /2013/09/10/2014-porsche-panamera-diesel-frankfurt-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/10/2014-porsche-panamera-diesel-frankfurt-2013/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>2014 Porsche Panamera Diesel is something to torque about</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a /2013/09/10/2014-porsche-panamera-diesel-frankfurt-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/10/2014-porsche-panamera-diesel-frankfurt-2013/">2014 Porsche Panamera Diesel is something to torque about</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Tue, 10 Sep 2013 06:31:00 EST.
